Hey Mastodon! I'm always looking for new peeps to follow!

Introduce yourself (or someone else!), let's make friends. :)

For this week's blog post, I did a color scheme analysis of Adventure Time's title cards: jonstoler.me/blog/adventure-ti

Next week I'll be doing a similar analysis for the frames of the episodes themselves!

Also it's helpful if you, like, forget to turn your screen off when you go to bed or whatever.

I normally have it set up, but I recently updated my phone and haven't copied my keys over yet. :(

Okay, yes I did.

To be precise, I only crashed the display service on my computer. But I have no other way or controlling it.

Kids, install and setup SSH from your phones so you can pkill non-terminating programs!

Oops I may have crashed my computer due to INTENSE ADVENTURE TIME ANALYSIS

LB: I did one of my undergraduate theses about time travel, and this is the best way to view it, for a variety of reasons.

Another time travel idea that I found very entertaining is the one from HPMOR (about time turners): you can never *change* the past, there is no separate past/present/future, reality is just computed in one swoop in a self-consistent way.

One of these weeks I'll blog about how I want others to treat my food allergies, because I think nearly everyone gets it wrong (imo the "right way" to talk about it is counterintuitive, not their fault).

Is that something others would be interested in reading?

I feel for y'all with food allergies/restrictions who have to spend time on this food-centric holiday with family/others who may not understand, care about, or prioritize your needs. Stay strong!

I'm so happy to be part of a community that values gopher as much as I do!

Me during the day: whoa mastodon moves fast, this is getting hard to keep up with

Me staying up instead of sleeping: yo mastodon where's my content give me cOnTeNt

I remember the first time I took an actual programming class (after programming as a hobby for several years). I was like "Wait... we have to code WITHOUT listening to music??? I don't know how to do that!"

Wondering if the prevalence of smart phones, spotify, and youtube is getting people into music at a younger age.

But it's not like music was that hard to find when I was growing up either... We had radio and boomboxes, even ipods and whatnot

I can't wrap my head around the fact that I didn't start listening to music until I was like 14.

What did I do for all those years???

I got a bunch second-hand at a local flea market a few weeks ago, most notably Garbage by Garbage.

Hey Mastodon! What's the last CD you bought? (not album or music, I mean actual CD)

Also, don't use a PIN, use a password!

One benefit of swipe keyboards is that they smudge away the fingerprints you leave from your lock screen PIN.
